Just a quick intoduction. I'm not in a position to keep or breed chickens right now as I live in a small apartment in South London, but I find chickens really fascinating and have always felt the uninitiated don't give the birds the respect they deserve! I hope one day to move to a country property and breed some Buff Cochins. I congratulate you all on your wonderful and informative site and will continue to follow the BYC forums with much gusto. Best regards, Euclid.
